Ready to Join?

Join us for a hike to 4 lakes in the Ariege region of the Pyrenees!

This is quite a steep hike Protected content elevation gain, 10km distance), so you need to have a reasonable level of fitness, and preferably have some previous experience of mountain hiking.

You must have proper hiking shoes to do this hike, and you will need sun protection (hat, sunglasses, sun cream) as there is likely to be little shade. Hiking poles (batons) are also very useful for the descent. Please also bring plenty of water (2L minimum) as it is likely to be hot, as well as a picnic and snacks (e.g. dried fruit/energy bars) and money ( Protected content ) for car-sharing costs and a drink on the way home.

We will need at least 3 drivers, so please comment below if you are willing to drive.

We’ll give full instructions nearer the time, but we are likely to meet at Protected content around 7.30am since we will have a 1h40 drive to get to the starting point.

And as promised on the last hike, for those who would like to practice their English, we’ll try to make this an English-speaking hike!
